The 35th Leiden Science Career Event took place on the 13th of March at the Gorlaeus Laboratories - Einsteinweg 55. For the next edition, block the 18th of March in your calendar! From 10.00 until 16.00 you can visit numerous stands of companies active in various fields. Additionally, you can participate in speeddates and workshops. We offer a free lunch during the day, and finish with network drinks from 16.00 until 18.00 during which you can talk with recruiters.
Each year the board of the Leiden Science Career Events tries to make the event as interesting as possible for all students of the Leiden Faculty of Science. We try to fill all stands with companies in different shapes and sizes, active in various fields. Take a look around at the company page to see what the companies say about themselves, which fields they work in, what kind of students they are interested in, which vacancies they currently have, and what they offer during the event!
The Leiden Science Career Event offers the possibility to companies to give a workshop with a subject of their choosing. Each year, there is place for a total of 14 workshops, given in three shifts. The Workshops Page shows which companies offer which workshops and in which shift. Be sure to sign up for the workshops in time!
Besides various stands and workshops, companies can opt for speeddates. During the speeddates you have a maximum of 15 minutes for an in-depth conversation with a recruiter. A maximum of 6 participants will be chosen by the company itself. For the procedure, you will have to give your resume. Look at the Company Page to see which companies take part in the speeddates, as well as which vacancies they currently have. Be sure to sign up in time, as the companies need ample time to choose.
Besides the career event in march, The Bètabanenmarkt Foundation organises an annual Bio Science Park Excursion. During this excursion, which takes place in november, we visit several companies on the Leiden Bio Science Park. This way, students get in touch with the companies surrounding them and giving them new insights in what a company has to offer them.
